The Steinway Piano

The church’s 9-foot, concert grand Steinway piano was a gift to the church in April of 2005 by an anonymous church member.  The concert grand Kawai that it replaced was moved to the Chapel and is used every Sunday for the early service.  Enjoy a recent piano concert, "The Art of the Fugue."







Through music, we nurture a congregational song which celebrates the redemptive love of God, models the servanthood of Christ, and awakens the transforming passion of the Holy Spirit.
